Politician Michael Tien points out (26 Dec) that allowing the aircrew members to quarantine at home increases the risk of COVID transmittance, while there is a loophole for not keeping airport workers in close-loop operations.
Sophia Chan, Secretary for Food and Health, is recommending third dose to those groups of high risk to exposure, such as airport workers, aircrew, and workers at quarantine hotels. What about asking the many medical workers especially those working in public hospital to get third dose? This is being kept in low-profile.
Leung Chi Chiu, specialist in Respiratory Medicine, saying that circuit breaker has to be applied to the many high risk countries when necessary, not just for particular flights, but the regions with incoming cases, or even restricting passengers from those countries to transit in Hong Kong.

They are all pointing towards aviation industry. It is on the news everyday. These tend to kill the industry, torture aviation workers. No one cares about how serious is the illness of those fully jabbed. Number of confirmed cases is the only index. Is it something incurable? Elderly are super inert to get vaccinated.

Pay attention to the medical workers on this YouTube clip (3:26 / 8:52 / 11:46) named " I have COVID-19. Tested positive & hospitalised in Hong Kong! "
Those paramedics transferring COVID patients, hospital workers and cleaners are working near the patient and are not required to quarantine for 14/21 days after work. The main difference is that they all wear full PPE and face shield. Either the aircrew wear like this for quarantine free, or medical workers handling COVID patients should quarantine for weeks.

After all, the company will lose money and absorb every hard impact brought by the virus.

Ordinary hk people can't afford to fly anyway. They're irrelevant.
